It has undergone a long way and major changes to switch from old gnustep-make 
1/libFoundation to gnustep-make 2 and gnustep-base.
Further OpenGroupware now depends on the SOPE fork maintained by the SOGo 
developers at Inverse.
A lot of changes went into OpenGroupware, and also SOPE to resolve 
compatibility and stability issues.
